Data Conversations: Stories from the field

20th May 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

22 May

Fancy delicious, free pizza and informal conversations with researchers about their research data?

Durham Research Methods Centre in association with Durham University Library present Data conversations, a series of events where Durham University researchers tell us about their research project from a research data point of view.

The theme for this event is Stories from the field in which researchers provide us with an insight into their data management practices in the field! Hear and discuss the challenges of data collection, safe (or unsafe!) storage, co-production and ownership with local stakeholders and more.

We have invited four speakers; in alphabetical order, they are:

Prof Kate Hampshire (Anthropology): “Managing (or trying to manage) data in resource-limited, internet-limited settings in Africa”
Prof Colin Mcfarlane (Geography): “Ethics, data and risk: reflections on managing a comparative project”
Prof Christine Merrell (Education): “Two steps forward, one step back: The challenges of managing and using data collected from schools”
Prof Graham Philip (Archaeology): Talk T.B.A.

This event is open to Durham University Postgraduate Research students and staff.
